Background Color and Character Spacing

We've added two new options for fields: Background Color and Character Spacing (kerning.)

When you set a background color for a text field, we'll fill in the whole box with that color before overlaying the text on top. Tip: Set the background color to white if you need to remove existing content from your PDF.

You can now also add some extra character spacing to your text if you want some extra space between each letter.

Copy/Paste for Fields

We've just added copy/paste for fields with CMD + c and CMD + v (or Ctrl.)

We'll be working on more UI improvements for the PDF template editor, including:

  • Undo/Redo
  • Snap fields along horizontal/vertical axis
  • Select multiple fields
    • Update the same attribute for multiple fields
    • Copy/paste multiple fields

Please let us know if you have any other suggestions!

Batch API Endpoint

We've added a batch API endpoint so you can generate up to 100 PDFs with a single request. Our API clients have all been updated with this new endpoint. View the documentation.
